It is called a LITTORAL COMBAT SHIP
"Designed for versatility and speed, littoral combat ships are a relatively new addition to the U.S. Navy built to operate close to shore and to quickly switch from one combat mode to another by swapping out different equipment such as anti-mine or anti-submarine gear."
THE QUOTED PART IS FROM AN ARTICLE IN THE JOURNAL SENTINAL
